White River to Wawa 3

White River to Wawa
There are two motels in White River, the one I stayed at is across the road from this one. Got a laugh out of the Colour Cable TV promo, the sign must be from the 70s as most motels advertise Free Wifi now! The morning was overcast but there was a strong NW wind which ...

White Lake to White River

White Lake to White River
Having a great sleep last night I was ready for a 130km ride into Wawa. Had breakfast, a three egg omelette at Gloria’s diner, one of the best ever! On the road at 930am to overcast skies. While leaving the parking lot an OPP officer waived me down…they found me! He wanted to warn me ...

Neys PP to White Lake 1

Neys PP to White Lake
These photos of Neys PP beach didn’t upload earlier…wow, a lot of mosquitoes in this park. Made packing up a one handed Olympic sport; one hand to pack and the other to fend of the mosquitoes. Headed off by 920am but by the time I had breakfast and did my blog from yesterday at the ...

Rossport to Neys Provincial Park

Rossport to Neys Provincial Park
After a morning rain delay I was on the road by 1035am. Passed through Schreiber and Terrace Bay. Both small villages on Lake Superior. The head wind today was strong and gusting. There were times I was coasting down some steep hills and actually losing speed because of the string winds. Aguassabon Falls was my ...

Nipigon to Rossport 2

Nipigon to Rossport
Meet Howie! He is a local in Nipigon and hangs with his pals in the morning and evening near the marina where I camped. They have a smoke, a coffee and solve all the worlds problems daily. They remind me of the gang that hung out at Brampton GC every morning. Howie was a great ...

Thunder Bay to Nipigon

Thunder Bay to Nipigon
Hit the road at 1010am this morning after another needed sleep in. The highlight of the day was the Terry Fox Memorial. It is about 10km east of Thunder Bay and very close to where he unfortunately had to finish his Marathon of Hope. Seeing the statue of him was truly inspirational. To think at ...

A day in Thunder Bay 1

A day in Thunder Bay
It’s not hard to imagine after cycling over 3400km that I enjoyed a sleep in this morning in a bed. First stop today was dropping Betty off at Thunder Cycle for some basic maintenance. The front tube hasn’t been holding air well so I had it replaced, had the chain cleaned, and adjusted the gear ...

Shabaqua to Thunder Bay

Shabaqua to Thunder Bay
I packed up after Mary cooked an amazing breakfast of blueberry pancakes, eggs, sausage, hashbrowns, and juices! Turns out the cycle Canada tour comes thru here. It is a tour you pay about $5000 and cycle the country with 20+ other people, fully supported so no lugging your own equipment. I thought of this as ...

Upsala to Shabaqua

Upsala to Shabaqua
What a great morning! We were on the road at 940am to sunny skies and a slight headwind. I am amazed how you get acclimated to your surroundings. By surroundings I mean virtually no shoulder and continual traffic flying past at 100km/hr. the first shoulder is about 3.5ft wide and offers a lot of room ...
